Seneca rocks baby!

Posted in Climbing by Mike on October 8, 2006

I took a little road trip to Seneca Rocks over the last weekend. On the way down it started raining, the weather report: rain clearing over night, 20-30% chance of rain tomorrow. I pulled in and met Chris Rice, the rain stopped long enough for me to set up my tent.
We woke the next morning with high hopes of climbing. Instead, it was raining. We headed off to the climb shop to hang out. While there we got the forcast, rain clearing over night, 20-30% chance of rain tomorrow. So we hung out, talked, met a lot of climbers.
The next morning we woke up to more rain. Off to the climb shop again for the hang out and forecast, rain clearing over night, 20-30% chance of rain tomorrow. Chris and I both decided we had seen enough of the shop and it was time to head off to the rocks one way or another. Chris and I took a walk up the hiking path to the observation deck to take in the view. On the trip up, it started raining on us. Up top we were standing in the rain cloud where it was barely drier than below it.
We opted for one more day to give it a try. Once again we woke up to rain. Ah well, we had a great camping trip. I’m still gonna climb Seneca Rocks.

Short post, I returned from a 3 day camping trip. We were trying to climb but got rained out. It was a great time anyway, I got to hang out with Chris Rice for three days. I’ll fill in more about that later.
